Nascere e Crescere is a cultural association of Midwifes who assist women during pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. We do many activities and projects concerning maternity. Our Antenatal classes represent a time to compare and discuss about pregnancy and birth with your midwife and with other expectant couples.
You can learn about pregnancy, delivery and post-natal period. Each class last about two hours and it includes an hour of exercises, breathing and relaxation and another hour for discussion about the topic of the day such as pregnancy, labour and birth, caring for a newborn and more...
The aim of the classes is to promote physical, emotional and mental health of the expectant mother in order for her to become empowered, eliminating the fear of the unknown, ready to handle events and to make the best birth choices.
Evidences show that women who attend antenatal classes, compared to the ones who don’t, have a lower risk to have a caesarean section, they require less pain relief, they breastfeed for longer, they are more aware and informed about events , they easily choose the place of birth and they have a lower risk to suffer of postnatal depression and baby blues.
